Trinity junior Christopher Elder will compete in the Junior Dance event at the 2018 Midwestern Sectional Figure Skating Championships, with his partner, Sophia Elder. These championships will be held November 15-19, 2017, in Bloomington, Minnesota.
For pair and dance athletes, the Sectional Championships are the first competition in U.S. Figure Skating’s qualifying pipeline. U.S. Figure Skating oversees the qualifying competitive pipeline and eventual selection of athletes to represent the United States at international competitions, including the World Championships and the Olympic Winter Games.
If Christopher and Sophia finish in the top four in the Junior Dance event, they will earn the opportunity to compete at the 2018 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, Dec. 29, 2017-Jan. 7, 2018, in San Jose, Ca.

Trinity is PROUD of you, Christopher!
